    Our tour guide Winni was simply fanatical. He did it with so much vigor and enthusiasm that you never got bored on the tour. The tour itself was fantastic. The view is beautiful and the town of Whistler is a dream come true. Definitely worth it. Especially if you only have a few days in Vancouver.

    Amazing day trip! Our guide Vinny was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun - he made sure to engage with every person on the tour and didn't take himself too seriously. The view from the Sea to Sky gondola was beautiful and the activities on the mountain top were really enjoyable as well. We had ample time to explore Whistler Village and squeeze in a hike to Lost Lake. We had a quick pit stop at Porteau Cove on the way back to Vancouver, which was also lovely (we didn't see any sea lions, but the view more than made up for that). I'm really glad I booked this experience, and it was a definite highlight to my already amazing BC trip. :)

    Even though the forest fire from Vancouver influenced the air, the tour was amazing. We can only imagine how it would’ve looked on a clear day. It was a good call from Derek to visit Shannon Falls after Whistler. The smoke cleared up and there were less visitors. Derek even pointed out a climber next to the falls.
